“I’ll only need your corneas for 20 minutes and then I’ll get ’em right back to you.”
I’m seeing (and hearing) a ton of these ads now on TV and radio…
You know what I’m talking about. The whole Lasik eye craze.
“Call now! Just $250 per eye while supplies last!”
I know quite a few people who have had their peepers overhauled with this procedure so I’m not arguing that it works. I’m just rather surprised that this method of advertising works for a medical procedure that’s obviously considered sensitive…
But from the amount of ads it IS apparently working.
“Start Your Own Online Business”
This reminds me of all the ‘ads’ I see on Facebook…especially the spammy groups.
An example I just pulled up from .76 seconds of searching:
‘If you could use a extra $300-$500 a week. for spending $18 one time…Would it be worth it?’Continue reading
How on earth can anyone…even Ms. Winfrey, compete with the Granddaddy of all greenbacks?
You know: Simoleons, Dead Presidents, Clams, Smackers…
…the almighty Dolla!
And that my friends would be Mr. Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com.
Let’s look at the tale of the tape shall we…Continue reading
A few months back I read an interview of a singer named Bruce Dickinson, who fronts the famous heavy metal band Iron Maiden.
Dickinson is also known for his accomplishments in aviation (he’s a licensed commercial airline pilot), fencing, writing novels and other pursuits.
He was releasing a book he had authored, and was asked by fan how he gets so much done with all he has going on in his life.
His answer was very illuminating.Continue reading
…they ride in to town not bringing death, famine, war and conquest…
…they bring Facebook spamming, product-oriented pitches, no email list building and a get-rich-quick mentality.
People who are desperate search for the brass ring of riches…any way they can get it to avoid the inevitable stampede:
– Play the lottery
– Marry the rich dude (or dame) hanging at the hotel bar
Not the best of odds.
For some they set out to start their own business…
“I’m buying a franchise!” they say.
Not so fast…Continue reading
“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready.” – Hugh Laurie
I must start out by letting any gamers know who might stumble upon (sounds like a great name for a website!) this post that this has nothing to do with any ‘game mechanics’ slowdown or even Star Citizen directly. So know that up front my PC warriors.
Now, to my online affiliate minions…
Star Citizen is a computer combat game for gamers to play each other online in real time (called a ‘massively multiplayer online role-playing game’ or mmorpg).
Now, why would I write about this you might be asking?Continue reading
“I can’t follow or unfollow anyone now it’s so frustrating! I need help answer me now.”
This above…the latest ‘comment’ on one of my popular Youtube videos on the practice of rapid following and unfollowing on Instagram.
(…by the by, this practice essentially no longer works…so if you’re doing it, I’d advise cutting it out)
So my fellow here demanded I answer him. Hmm. Ok. But first, a couple of quick questions:Continue reading
The grammar police dah dah dah dah dah dah dah!!
In 3rd grade my older brother had this teacher named Miss Swanson who was, shall we say, a bit of a totalitarian.
I’m pretty sure it was ‘Miss’ because she needed people to know she hated men…but I digress…
It didn’t help that my bro was a bit of a muckraker…you know…a troublemaker.
So when he would cut up, Swanson was at the ready with the ruler…
Usually on the back of the hands or on the rump roast. Eh, you get the idea.
In this day and age teachers can hardly get away with raising their voice at a student much less be able to whack ‘em with a ruler, wooden spoon or garden rake. Bleh! Cream puff world we live in now…
And this reminds me ofContinue reading
…who (like yours truly) would rather rake in the moolah on his own terms than work ‘for the man’.
It’s not often that I sing the proverbial praises for another Internet Stud (especially with the same surname…as I thought that was reserved for me), but that is exactly what Dean Holland is.
Now, I have no idea if he lifts weights, but I’m pretty sure that he is pretty adept at lifting the ever popular 12-ounce curl. (Again, a talent I am also adept in)
Dean has been through the wringer in the online arena over the years but unlike most he never gave up.
It’s a familiar story: Failure after failure…piling up big debts trying to figure out what it would take to succeed in his online business.Continue reading
A few weeks back I was having lunch with internet marketing legend John Chow.
(He has these ‘Dot Com Lunches’ in California on the weekends…good stuff and I always learn a ton)
So me, John and a few others are talking about online business strategies while eating some good Pho… (ever had Pho??)
John then says…Continue reading
“What else are you selling?”
“All kinds of s#@!. But I don’t have to sell this and you know it, ’cause this kind of s#@! here sells itself.”
Oh yeah Jackson.
You ever see the movie, ‘Heat’, with Robert DiNiro and Al Pacino?
Do yourself a favor…if not, go rent it and watch it.
The bank shootout scene is one of the best ever.Continue reading
